Wix’s Business and Ecommerce Plans in Detail
But of course, if you’re looking to start an online store, need more video storage or fancy using one of Wix’s business apps (e.g. Wix Bookings or Wix Hotels), you should consider one of the Business or eCommerce premium plans:
|Business Basic||Business Unlimited||Business VIP|
|Video Storage||5 hours||10 hours||Unlimited|
|Business apps for hotels, restaurants, musicians and bookings||All included||All included||All included|
|Ecommerce (with unlimited items)||Included||Included||Included|
|Wix sales fee||0%||0%||0%|
|Wix Payments, Stripe and Paypal||US: 2.9% + $0.30 USD per transaction
Cheaper rates for transactions with European cards may apply. Further information.
|3 campaigns / 5.000 emails / month|
|Monthly Plan Prices||$28/month||$33 /month||$56 /month|
|Yearly Plan Prices||$23/month
|Two-Year Plan Prices||$20 /month||$23.50 /month||$42 /month|
|Three-Year Plan Prices||$18/month||$22/month||$38.50/month|
|More information||Check out plan||Check out plan||Check out plan|
Please note that the yearly, 2-year and 3-year plans will be charged at once. So you’ll be paying the full term upfront in one payment.
Sidenote: All the Wix Business and eCommerce plans include your own domain name, SSL encryption and are 100% ad-free.
What does each Wix premium plan include?
Combo comes with a domain name if you pick a yearly subscription. You can get .com, .net, .org, .biz and a few other extensions (see screenshot). Please note that it’s only free for the first year, the regular price is around $14.95 per year.
Basically, Combo has everything except an online store option. The only difference between this and the Unlimited plan is storage, bandwidth and the included video hours.
The Pro plan includes a logo that you can create with Wix Logo Maker. But to be honest, we can’t think of any scenario where the Pro plan makes much sense (unless you absolutely need the 20 GB of storage). It’s too expensive for what it is.
The VIP plan’s main selling point is the priority support. If you have a question it’ll be pushed in front of the line – cheeky. Be aware that this plan doesn’t include the online store module. You’ll need one of the Business plans for that – read below.
Our recommendation: In our opinion Combo is all you need for a regular site without ecommerce (even though Wix heavily promoted Unlimited and Pro). If you do ever come close to exceeding your Combo plan’s storage or bandwidth limits, Wix will inform you well in advance (should be good for about 3,000 monthly visitors). Upgrading plans is always possible and existing funds will be credited. For average sites, Combo’s data limits are more than enough.
The Business & eCommerce plans let you accept payments through your website and grant you access to Wix’s online store. Additionally, you’ll be also able to use the most interesting Wix premium apps like Wix Hotels, Wix Restaurants, Wix Bookings or Wix Music.
Wix Business Basic is the most recommendable tier. It’s enough to get started with ecommerce or use one of the aforementioned premium apps to receive payments. There are no commission fees charged by Wix (other than transaction costs for your payment gateway).
Business Unlimited is a plan that doesn’t really add much value. You get a little bit more storage (35GB) and have access to a free logo.
Business VIP can be valuable if you need really fast support. You’ll always skip the support queue, which is nice. But is it worth paying more than twice as much as for Business Basic? Probably not.
Sidenote: Keep in mind that you can test the online store and most premium apps in the free plan too. Compared to its competitors, the online store is pretty low-cost. You’ll find more information in our Wix eCommerce review.
Finally, they also offer an Enterprise plan at $500 (!) per month. I am pretty sure they haven’t sold many of them. Most likely this is just a sales tactic called “price anchoring”. Next to a really high price, the other packages don’t look quite as expensive anymore. We don’t think anyone really needs a Wix Enterprise package.
How can I pay for my Wix subscription?
Accepted payment methods at Wix are Visa/Mastercard, American Express, JBC, Diners and Discover. If you are based in Europe you can also pay by direct debit (SEPA). Direct debit may take 2-7 business days to process. Wix also issues VAT invoices that can be found in your account under Billing History. Paypal is currently not accepted by Wix.
What are the Wix plans we recommend the most?
Based on 1,292 completions, our Smart Finder tool recommended the following plans:
You can see that Wix Combo was the best match for most people wanting to create a regular website. It was the top recommendation 474 times (37%). For ecommerce, Wix Business Basic was recommended 409 times (32%).
This result is based on 1,972 Smart Finder engagements, of which, 1,292 were completed, in a time frame of 7 weeks. Another 2% were recommended the Free plan. The Pro and Enterprise plans weren’t included in the results as they are only relevant to a tiny segment of all Wix users.
What about Email Accounts?
One thing Wix doesn’t solve particularly well is email accounts for your domain name. You can sign up for G Suite through them but you’ll have to pay $6 per month. Compare that to Jimdo where you get email accounts for a lot less than that (starting at only $12 per year).
Another alternative is to purchase the domain name through a third party (e.g. Namecheap) and get your email accounts from there. This will cost you around $10 per year.
Summary of Wix’s Pricing:
Our quick summary of all 9 Wix pricing tier. Prices are shown for the annual billing option.
- Free: $0 forever. Gives you access to all templates and most features. Ad-supported without proper domain name.
- Combo: $13/month. Use your own domain and remove Wix’s ads. Great for personal and small business sites.
- Unlimited: $17/month. Get more storage (10GB) and bandwidth. In most cases this plan isn’t necessary.
- Pro: $22/month. Get 20GB storage and a professional logo. We find this plan overpriced.
- VIP: $39/month. Take advantage of the priority support. It’s too expensive though.
- Business Basic: $23/month. The best plan for ecommerce (online store, website and even bookings etc.).
- Business Unlimited: $27. Get more storage (35GB) and a logo.
- Business VIP: $49. Priority support for store owners.
- Enterprise: $500/month. Adds professional services (SEO and an account manager). Very expensive.
Final thoughts – Is Wix good value?
Here’s the short answer: It can be very good value but you’ll need to find the plan that’s right for you.
For most non-ecommerce users, Combo is usually the best option as it’s ad-free and you’ll get your own domain name. Unless you are expecting hundreds of daily visitors right from the start you should forget about the other website plans for now. Remember, you can always upgrade later!
If you’d like to open an online store, we would recommend starting out with Business Basic as this is the cheapest plan that comes with ecommerce features. We like that Wix also offers monthly payment options as many other website builders only have yearly subscriptions available.
Other plans like PRO or the VIP tiers are extremely expensive and should only be purchased if you know exactly why you need them. If you are still not sure which plan is right for you, please try out our Smart Finder!

Do all Wix plans include hosting?
Yes, hosting is included. There won’t be any extra cost for you.
How can I cancel my Wix account / website?
Cancelling a Wix premium package can easily be done from within your account as you can see in the screenshot:
For further details please go to Wix’s support pages and search for “canceling”.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes, there is a 14-day “no questions asked” money-back guarantee for all premium plans. Please note that this refund policy doesn’t apply to domain names.
Are there any coupon or promo codes for Wix?
How much is Wix Bookings?
The basic version of Wix Bookings is free (see our review). The paid plan allows you to receive payments online, offer group bookings and will also let you send out reminder emails. Here’s an overview of all plans with Wix Bookings included:
Why doesn't the eCommerce plan have unlimited bandwidth?
We don’t know! However, 10 GB is a lot when you keep in mind that Wix is supposed to be for small businesses. Let’s say the average visit costs 2 MB of bandwidth then you could have up to 5000 Visitors per month. If this still won’t be enough, you should consider a platform like Shopify that you can scale.
Are there any other eCommerce plans?
Yes, Wix has ecommerce-specific plans that are offered only to existing Wix online store owners. The Wix eCommerce plan (Basic Store) is the best option to start your online store with, but whereas the bandwidth is unlimited, the storage is limited to 20GB.
Higher plans offer more storage: Unlimited Store comes with 35GB, VIP Store with 50GB and Super Store has 75GB of storage. These plans also include some credit to use Shout Out, Wix’s newsletter tool.
The Super Store and VIP Store plans have VIP Support and an SEO Expert site review to help with optimization. It’s right for those that either need a lot of storage (> 35GB) or would like to have priority support and expert SEO guidance.
Finally, the Super Store plan comes with a nice perk: you can use the Wix Business Solutions. These are apps that you can integrate into your website, and are meant for hotels, restaurants, musicians or site owners needing to take bookings online.
How many products can I add to Wix Ecommerce?
Currently, there is no limit on the number of items you can add.
Is there a discount for non-profit organisations (NGO)?
Yes, charitable and non-profit organizations are eligible for a free Combo plan. It needs to be renewed every year.
To set it up, Wix requires a copy of your organization’s tax exemption certificate or registered charity number.
When I try to upgrade Wix I am seeing prices that are much higher. Why?
You probably have an app installed such as Wix Bookings. When you click upgrade it will automatically add the app to your purchase price.
To avoid this, scroll to the bottom of the upgrade page and click this link:
What is SiteBooster – do I need it?
SiteBooster is included from the Unlimited plan and therefore you might wonder whether you actually need it.
It’s basically a listing service that will add your local business to about 15 directories such as Apple Maps, Google Maps, Yelp, Foursquare and a few others.
While it’s a convenient way to add your business to all these services at once, this can also be done manually by yourself (which would allow you to settle with the slightly cheaper Wix Combo plan).
If you are indeed a local business and you value your time a lot, then it’s probably a good idea to have SiteBooster do the listings for you.
Wix is running a promotion but Combo and Business Basic are not included. What should I do?
Wix sometimes offers discounts of up to 50%. Unfortunately, they usually exclude Combo and Business Basic – the plans we recommend the most!
In this case, we advise you to take advantage of the offer only if you’d consider at least a 2 or even 3-year plan. This way your savings will be significant. For example:
Combo for 2 years costs $252.
Unlimited for 2 years costs only $162 (50% discount applied).
Just don’t forget to downgrade your plan after the initial 2 or 3-year period if you don’t need the extra features!
